A: Rusty orange-golden with some bubbles streaming up to a quickly dissipating white head. Lacing is left on the glass.

S: Sweet corn and citrus. Hops.

T: Bubblegum, graham cracker, biscuit, and grain. On the fresher side: big hops, orange peel, some banana, and woody pine. Great taste!

M: Medium and buttery with a nice lingering dryness. Coats the mouth a bit.

O: A great brew! I love the hop character in this as well as the malty undertones. If they don't, Deschutes needs to make a six pack of this.

A: orange. Clear. Thick, foamy, white head. Excellent lacing.

S: sweet bubblegum followed by mango and citrus.

T: sweet malty tastes up front. Grapefruit. Biscuit.

M: medium carbonation. Medium body. More dry than sweet.

O: good IPA. Well balanced. Hops work well with balance between malts and booze.

Color- cloudy gold. Huge head.

Aroma- lemons, grapefruit, and hints of grass and honey.

Taste- starts hoppy and clean, then gets a little heavy and sweet in the middle, finishing on notes of bitter greens and grapefruit rind with a lingering and long dry aftertaste. Purchased at Costco for $3.99. Drink by date 7/15/14. Tasted on 7/15/14.

Poured from 650 ml bomber into a Liefmans Goudenband glass (my preferred all purpose beer tasting glass).
